, yeah, okay. i did say to lance, i would do it this once, but don't tell me what i'm picking up. i don't want to know. >> why did you do it? >> i always felt kind of guilty in ways by not getting involved in the medical program because be involved in the medical program and i wouldn't, at the time, i probably stood out a bit because i didn't. and so i kind of felt, here, i'll do it. >> did you see lance armstrong inject himself with drugs or take drugs? >> you don't sit and do it in front of people. couple riders would do it because they would share rooms. if the door is shut, you don't go in that door. >> there's also a famous quote which has been said a lot. >> the quote got a bit dramatized and history has shown that i didn't have enough to bring him down and i never wanted to bring him down. never, ever wanted to bring lance down. i think in the long term it will be good for cycling and good for riders involved in cycling because i think now, more than ever, this is the opportunity for riders to have the choice to ride clean and stay clean, if they choose to. >> we'll have much mor

from now, he would be 49. and i don't know how interested he would be in competing at that age. i would say, also, though that possibly because it's lance armstrong and depending on what kind of information he provides them, maybe the governing bodies in international sports makes some kind of agreement to go outside the rule book and cut that ban down to less than eight years. but in any event, i don't think we're going to see him compete in sanction events any time soon. >> let's talk about the legal implications, he said under oath he did not dope. what about possible civil lawsuits? people had money invested in lance armstrong and the armstrong brand. as he continuously lied about not doping. >> yeah, criminally, as far as perjury, last time he was known to have testified that he did not use performance-enhancing drugs was 2005. it was in a lawsuit brought against him by a promotions company in dallas. and my understanding about that is he is not at risk there because it's been seven years since then and that is beyond the statute of limitations. i think he's clear there. civilly, i

your flu shot or don't, you get the flu or you don't. but seems that this season is so much more deadly than others. what makes this one so unusual? >> the flu season every year picks up around october. this year's a little earlier. we're experiencing about a 20% increase in just our own emergency department visits. vaccination actually was fairly accurate with the strains selected for the vaccination, but with the other medical illnesses that individuals have, the elderly, we're seeing a tremendous increase of the volume of patients. so it's predictable, but there is a large volume of patients that did not get the vaccination this year and therefore a lot more complications. >> quantify that for us. how many more patients are you seeing at piedmont? >> about 20% to 25% more patients in our emergency department daily. we will have 30 positive influenza screens in the month of november. it ticked up to 80 in december. and we're on track in january, as well. and those are just ones we've tested. and many times it's clinically diagnosed and you may not actually do an influenza test it's no
